Sexy, Philippe Starck–designed sleep in the heart of L.A. with a destination restaurant
Philippe Starck’s sleek design includes eye-catching details at every turn. Translucent glass stag heads top shelves in the lobby lounge, a solid black plastic steed wears a lampshade on its head by the reception desk, and playful glossy fashion photography graces the elevators and landings.
Bed & Bath
Flash and dazzle continue in the guestrooms. Among the custom-designed Starck furniture are platform beds that seem to float in the center of the room, a desk behind them and a tufted banquette against the window. One thing you don’t immediately see: the TV, which hides behind a frosted glass wall and shows up only when you turn it on. In the bathrooms, moody gray marble is a sophisticated backdrop for the tub and rain shower. Bath products in the rooms are by the hotel’s Ciel spa. One delightfully non-minimalist touch: colorful stained glass stemware for your in-room bottle of Evian.
The hotel’s flagship restaurant, the Bazaar, continues to set the standard five years after it opened, with celeb chef José Andrés’s traditional tapas and out-there small plates of molecular gastronomy (from the “not your everyday caprese” salad of balls of cherry tomatoes and mozzarella that burst in your mouth, to tiny Philly cheese steaks on “air bread”). Make it extra special with the 20-plus-course tasting menu in the SAAM private dining room.
The Bazaar’s bar is a party scene par excellence, with libations steaming with dry ice or topped with cotton candy, and there are also elegant desserts, from wafer-thin chocolates to sour cherry marshmallows. The adjacent Regalo boutique is unlike any hotel gift shop we’ve ever seen: items that define eclectic, from fashionable lighters to day-glo teddy bears and an amazing selection of art books.
The Ciel spa, resplendent in white-on-white, offers a full complement of beauty, body and massage treatments, and from the rooftop pool deck you can look through giant picture frames at the views of the skyscrapers of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, and the Hollywood Hills beyond.
In the Area
Many of L.A.’s cultural, culinary and fashion highlights are within a couple of miles and are reachable by the hotel's shuttle. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is the largest museum in the western U.S., and the Annenberg Space for Photography presents consistently stunning shows. Top tables include Comme Ça, Fig & Olive and Nobu. Fashion rules on Rodeo Drive, or find design inspiration at Pacific Design Center. And West Hollywood’s nightlife shimmers on the Sunset Strip and the gay district around Santa Monica Boulevard, where the SLS’s parent, SBE, owns the Abbey, L.A.’s legendary gay bar, which welcomes all comers.
